5. The other guys get paid, too
The Lions, like the Bombers, figure to be in an ornery mood when the ball is placed on the tee. They blew a 21-0 lead at home to Toronto — their largest advantage ever surrendered in a loss. Just to hammer that home further, the 21-point comeback by the Argos was the third-largest in CFL history by a road team.
What makes the Leos a frightening opponent is the weapons on offence, led by QB Travis Lulay, receivers Emmanuel Arceneaux, Austin Collie, Courtney Taylor and Shawn Gore and — shout-out to the Winnipeg lad — running back Andrew Harris.
Harris was dynamite last week, scoring three touchdowns. He has 391 yards from scrimmage over the past three games.
“Andrew Harris is a very, very, very good running back who catches the ball well out of the backfield,” said O’Shea, who is usually stingy with his praise of opposing players. “He’s a dual threat in that regard and he doesn’t mind blocking. Like (Calgary’s) Jon Cornish, I find that he stays on his feet and gets yards after contact.”
